Dr. Dedhia is one of the first 10 otolaryngologists in the U.S. to complete a fellowship in sleep medicine, providing him a deep-seated understanding of obstructive sleep apnea. He provides all medical and surgical options for the disease, including the full gamut of sleep surgery such as drug-induced sleep endoscopy, reconstructive nasal surgery, soft tissue surgery, hypoglossal nerve stimulation and skeletal surgery. Over his 4 years serving as Director of Sleep Surgery at Emory University (prior to coming to Penn), he established an international reputation in sleep surgery.
Dr. Dedhia holds a Masters in Clinical Research which has paved the way for him to receive 3 foundation grants (American Heart Association, American Sleep Medicine Foundation and Triological Society) related to sleep apnea. He has published over 20 peer-reviewed articles and serves as Associate Editor for the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. He regularly lectures for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and American Academy of Otolaryngology.
